The place looked fine online and in the dark but after check in you drive to your room around the corner and soon notice broken down cars and junk laying around like old mattresses old lounge cushions and car trailers.

We arrived around 8pm and left around 6am the following morning. The front house staff were very lovely (the 2 ladies we met). The room was clean, nice towels, a little kitchen & fridge. Great location, minutes away from the mall, grocery store & train. Very quiet, great for a one night stay.

Despite being on a major highway, it was very quiet on a Saturday night. Outdoor swimming pool.We had a big room, queen size bed with comfortable Actil sheets. Also a toaster, microwave,...

I wish I had read these reviews before I booked. I have traveled extensively both in Australia and overseas, in hotels, motels and B&Bs. Never have I found a place so tatty or dirty. There was dust, moth holes in the curtains and the shower and bathroom were filthy. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Property has been refurbished and comments posted do not reflect the current state of the Motel. Most comments are from the previous manager time who has been dismissed. Owner has taken control as of 01 December 2011 and can guarantee guests quality accommodation. Owner
